Messy Church got off to a great start on Sunday 24th January. The children and their families were welcomed into St Francis School by members of St Budock Church.
There was lots of activities to get involved in before the puppet show began. The afternoon began with some worship as we sang Zacchaeus was a very little man and then the puppets told the story of Zacchaeus and how he climbed up into the tree because he wanted to see Jesus. Then the puppets led us in a few songs with plenty of action. This was followed by our tea party which was blessed by Bishop Tim who taught us a new Grace to sing.
Bishop Tim was then asked to cut the Messy Church cake and everyone enjoyed their tea. Emmanuel Full Gospel puppets of Redruth gave each child a copy of a book called ‘The Time of Jesus’ which includes crafts to make that recreate everyday life in the time of Jesus, crafts that bring to life the story of Jesus himself.
Many thanks to Tina for persevering with her vision for this event and her wonderful team who worked so hard to make the first Messy Church such a great success.
The next Messy Church will be on Sunday 1st March, 4 – 6 pm.
